    I would say the #1 reason is the lack of realy deep waters and also the fact that most people who dont know better probably keep them thinking they are channel cats.I would say in the next few years we will be catching them on a regular basis.

    You know how our DNR is anything they do they overdo it.Kinda like the New River walleye strain they stocked thousands upon thousands into the main kanawha river the last 2-3 years and they are already starting to reach 3-4 lbs.
